governors of New Jersey and New York said Friday they are ordering
a mandatory, 21-day quarantine for all doctors and other travelers
who have had contact with Ebola victims in West Africa.
The move came after a New York City doctor who returned to the
U.S. a week ago from treating Ebola victims in Guinea was diagnosed
with the lethal disease.
Many New Yorkers and others were dismayed to learn that in the

high school on Friday, killing a classmate and wounding at least
four others before he was killed amid the chaos of students
scrambling to safety, authorities said.
All of the victims were young people, and three were in critical
condition with gunshot wounds to the head and in surgery, said

at the expense of Russia's neighbors.
Putin said on Thursday that Russia had helped Ukraine's former
president Viktor Yanukovich to flee to Russia in February after he

"I will say it openly - he asked to be driven away to Russia.
Which we did," Putin told a meeting with political scholars.

voters whether the borough's students should attend high school in

Judge Peter Bariso Jr. ruled earlier this week that the
